Analyze, through an online questionnaire, the knowledge and practice about the prevention and detection of prostate cancer in male employees of a pharmaceutical company.
Investigators are building an empirical evidence base for real world data through large-scale replication of randomized controlled trials. The investigators' goal is to understand for what types of clinical questions real world data analyses can be conducted with confidence and how to implement such studies.
Ga-68 PSMA-11 PET/CT is known as useful method for localizing recurred tumor lesions in prostate cancer patients with biochemical recurrence [elevated serum prostate specific antigen (PSA) after radical prostatectomy]. The recent digital PET/CT which is known to show better resolution and sensitivity than analogue PET/CT may have better performance for detecting early small recurred tumor lesions. This study is intended to compare the diagnostic performance (detection rate and positive predictive value) of Ga-68 PSMA-11 PET/CT using analogue PET/CT scanner and digital PET/CT scanner in same patients who had biochemical recurrence of prostate cancer.
To determine the incidence and risk factors of ethanol-induced symptoms, this multicenter, prospective, observational study is designed to include patients in Korea who are receiving chemotherapy with ethanol-containing docetaxel alone or in combination. Subjects who voluntarily provide written informed consent to provide information for this study and meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria will be given an enrollment number and will be followed during the observation period to collect study-related data in the Case Report Forms (CRFs) as predefined in the study protocol. Patients' decision to participate (or not) in this study will not affect their treatment (physician's prescriptions or diagnostic/therapeutic decisions).
Background: Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. For some men, their cancer is monitored. Others have surgery to remove the prostate. Focal therapy is another treatment option. It treats the areas of cancer selectively, which leaves the rest of the prostate intact. This can help lessen side effects. Men who get focal therapy must be chosen carefully. The Oncotype DX Genomic Prostate Score (GPS) assay tests biopsy samples for certain cancer-related genes. It then then gives a score from 1 to 100 to predict the likelihood of poor outcomes. The GPS is used to choose men for focal therapy. Researchers want to test the GPS further. Objective: To assess how GPS may be useful when used with MRI to improve how men are chosen for focal therapy of prostate cancer. Eligibility: Men age 18 and older who had NCCN low or intermediate risk prostate cancer and had MRI and radical prostatectomy at the Urologic Oncology Branch, National Cancer Institute and collaborating centers. Design: This is a multisite study. It will review data and samples that were collected in the past. Samples and images from up to 277 participants will be used. Tumor tissue will be tested with the GPS. Data such as age at diagnosis, race, biopsy results, and pathology results will be merged with the GPS results. Data will be entered into an in-house electronic system. It will be password protected. All data will be kept in secure sites that comply with NIH security standards.
This is a trial of 5 fraction SBRT combined with androgen deprivation therapy for patients with localized high-risk or unfavorable intermediate risk prostate cancer
This is an open label, non-randomised, phase I, sequential group trial which will explore the safety and tolerability of ascending doses of AdNRGM, in combination with CB1954. Five groups of 3 patients each will be treated with escalating doses of AdNRGM (10^10, 3x10^10, 10^11, 3x10^11, 10^12 vp) followed 2 days later by intravenous CB1954 at a fixed dose (24mg/m^2). To ensure the coverage of the whole prostate the vector will be delivered by multiple, template-guided trans-perineal injections using an adaptation of standard prostate brachytherapy technique. Dose escalation will be dependent on safety and tolerability; at each dose-level, if dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) is seen in one patient, the cohort will be expanded to a maximum of 6 patients. If DLT is then observed in a second patient at that dose, no further patients will be recruited and the previous (lower) dose-level will be defined as the maximum tolerated dose (MTD). If DLT is seen in 0/3 or just 1/6 patients, dose escalation may continue.
This is a prospective imaging study evaluating the utility of baseline metabolic MR imaging as a diagnostic and response monitoring tool in patients with advanced prostate cancer. Preliminary pre-clinical and clinical data demonstrates the ability of HP C-13 pyruvate/metabolic MR imaging to detect high-grade prostate cancer, including cancer with neuroendocrine differentiation, as well as provide early evidence of metabolic response and resistance following application of systemic therapies for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer patients. In the proposed study, the investigators aim is to extend the initial clinical results and further develop HP C-13 MRI as an imaging modality in advanced prostate cancer.
to compare the efficacy of HIFU treatment with standard treatment in two situations: 1. as first-line cancer treatment, HIFU is compared to radical prostatectomy. 2. for patients with recurrence after external beam radiotherapy, HIFU treatment is compared to radical prostatectomy.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of Magnetic-Resonance(MR)-ultrasound image fusion-guided transrectal-based focal laser ablation (FLA) of prostate cancer using the Orion System, an investigational laser-based interstitial irradiation/thermal soft-tissue ablation system. Safety and feasibility will be determined by analyzing the number, type, and severity of adverse events.
